Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Look For When Buying Apples?
Buy apples that are brightly colored, free of bruises or damaged skin, and firm. When you gently press on an apple, make sure the skin isn't too soft. The skin should show no signs of shriveling.
How Should Apples Be Stored?
Apples are a hardy fruit and can be kept for months if stored properly. Apples do well in cold temperatures. If you store apples in the crisper section of your refrigerator, place a wet sponge or wet paper towel in the crisper to provide a little moisture. Since apples emit ethylene gas, keep them away from other fruits and vegetables and immediately remove apples that are starting to go bad.
